PACE Character Trait for February is HONESTY!

What is honesty and why does it matter?

HONESTY IS SINCERITY AND REVERENCE OR LOVE FOR THE TRUTH

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” -William Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well

“With a relational blend of patient availability and courage, honesty can thrive and be the difference between an authentic life and one that is paralyzed from hiding from the truth.” David Milliken, Campus Director at the Hutton Settlement Children’s Home and PACE guest columnist for February, 2018.

“Honesty can be seen in what we do and in the way we conduct ourselves: when at work, at school, talking to friends, and being with family.” Emma Daley, East Valley Parent Partnership student and PACE guest columnist for February, 2020.

“As [my children] grow…I want them to be able to create a life that honors others while allowing them to be true to themselves. Honesty done well is part of that.” Cassi Surprise, East Valley Parent Partnership parent and PACE guest columnist for February, 2019.

“When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth.” -Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
